Adopt, Don't Shop! Caturday Special: Carmen & Low-Cost Spay/Neuter in MA

I started volunteering at the Seekonk Animal Shelter back in December. I've always wanted to save the kitties - one kitty at a time. But since my husband put the kay-bash on my kitty-saving efforts after two kitties, I must devise a different plan for saving them!

This is a new series I plan on continuing as long as there are cats available for adoption at the Seekonk Shelter. Although called Caturday, it will also include dogs available for adoption too.

Owning a pet is an expensive endeavor. They're like children - you need to feed them, toilet them, take them to the doctor's, buy them toys.... it all adds up. So why on earth would someone want to dole out more money by buying a pet when you can get great pets through adoption!?

If you adopt a cat or dog from a Massachusetts shelter, it is a requirement that the animal be spayed or neutered. If the animal is old enough, it will be spayed before adoption and the adoption fee may be a bit higher. If the animal is too young, you, as the adopter, are required to sign paperwork stating you will have the animal spayed by a certain deadline. If you do not follow through and provide documentation, the shelter can pursue legal action. If you need to spay or neuter your cat or dog, check out some of these low-cost clinics in Massachusetts. This list has been put together by the Massachusetts Animal Coalition.

And this week's Caturday is dedicated to Carmen.

Carmen is a sweet 5-year old short-haired brown tiger with beautiful white markings. He was left behind when his owners moved. He spent a year and a half as a stray near the Seekonk Commons where neighbors took care of him. He loves to be picked up and will make a wonderful lap cap. He is neutered and up to date on all of his vaccinations.

If you're interested in adopting Carmen, or any other animal from the Seekonk Animal Shelter, here is the application for adoption.
